Jack Kelly Tournament of Champions
The Season-ending PGA Junior Golf TOUR Championship - Sunday, September 3, 2017
In order to help the Connecticut Section PGA conduct its Junior golf programs, in 2005, The Jack Kelly Junior Golf Classic made the largest financial contribution that the Connecticut Section PGA Golf Foundation has ever received. Jack Kelly was a PGA Professional at Raceway Golf Club who passed away in 1994 at the age of 34.
The Raceway Golf Club began and conducted this tournament for 11 years. It was one of the founding tournaments of the PGA Junior Golf TOUR. To show its appreciation, the Connecticut Section PGA Golf Foundation pays tribute to both the ideals formulated by the late Jack Kelly and the efforts made by the committee members and event sponsors that resulted in an extremely successful junior golf tournament.
The 2017 Jack Kelly PGA Junior Tournament of Champions will played Sunday, September 3, at Shennecossett Golf Course in Groton, CT, and is 18-holes at Stroke Play; Boys & Girls Division; playoffs for champions if necessary. This is a special invitational event made possible through the Connecticut Section PGA Junior Golf Association. Now in its 23rd year, the 2017 Junior Tournament of Champions invites the Connecticut Section's best young golfers to compete in a season-concluding event, designed to be one of the premier "major" junior tournaments within the region.
There is a $55 entry fee for members of the JGA that qualify.
For non-members that qualify, there is a $85 entry fee.
The Champion and runner up in both the Boys and Girls Divisions will receive trophies; and the champions' names will be engraved on the permanent Junior Tournament of Champions plaque that is displayed at the Connecticut Section PGA Office, Carriage House.
